The goal of the course is to present advanced issues of artificial intelligence from the
perspective of a computerized autonomous agent
The first part covers basic methods of artificial intelligence – the logic of knowledge
representation, inference rules and problem solving including: uniformed search, informed
search with heuristic functions, constraint satisfaction problems and adversarial games. The
second part deals with practical planning and acting of an autonomous agent (i.e., situation
space, plan space, plan decomposition, hierarchic decomposition, contingency planning), and
with probabilistic reasoning. The third part discusses agent design problems in the area of
knowledge acquisition (learning from observations, in neural networks and reinforcement
learning), and machine perception (image and speech understanding).

Abilities: After completing this course, the students will be able to:
Produce and analyse the knowledge inference rules,
Acquire the knowledge using: active observation, neural networks processing.
Process the visual information and recognize speech using the machine perception.

Assessment: 30% continuous assessment, 70% from end-semester examination.
